Social Enterprise Opportunity for all Members

So what is a Social enterprise? It’s a business that is designed to make just enough money to survive but its main aim is to provide training and jobs for people who would like to be employed.

The Step Ahead Social Enterprise Group met for the first time in December. There were many good ideas about what a social enterprise would look like at Step Ahead. Some of the ideas were sewing, car washing, furniture moving, pet and house sitting, painting, wood work car care and general repairs.Other ideas are welcome.

The group decided to offer sewing repairs to staff, members and the local community as we have the resources available at Step Ahead already. The plan would be to provide high quality sewing services to the local community at attractive prices so that we can build a business, starting slowly and building up as time goes on.

We just need some members to make it happen! We would like any interested members to come along to our next meeting at 2:00pm Thursday 23rd January 2020. No experience necessary. Any questions or comments please see Julie
